Amids the rolling hills, beside that valleys carpeted in emerald-green tea platations and sirled the mist wrapper lays this hily beauty-munnar. Nestled at the confluence of three mounrain streams, mudrapuzha, Nallathanni and kundala; Munnar owes its name and verdure to that flowing brooks. With its expansive tea plantations, exotic flora, winding lanes and picture-book rowns, Munnar lures the travel lovers. Certainly it's a scenic poetry

Stayed for 2 nights in December 2019 for year end family vacation. Great ambience, large size well maintained rooms. They have a massage center with spa. Professionally managed and hygienic spa everyone should visit and enjoy. Room service was bit lax as it was taking longer than usual. Gym equipment were dysfunctional. Overall a great place for spending quiet time in the lap of nature surrounded by tea gardens on Munnar.

Pros:
Room: Very spacious room.
Property: Vast. Well maintained mostly.
Food: Good breakfast. Dinner was also good.
Service: Overall service was good.

Cons: The road to the resort is a bit narrow and may be difficult to find even if using Google maps. There is a tiny board of the resort, a bigger board would have helped.
There is a small pond inside the property with paddle boating. The pond wasn't so well maintained.

Surprise Element: There is a stream of water just opposite to the resort which is also having a small waterfall. This is not at all crowded and only residents of the resort normally go there. So its like you get a private waterfall experience.

As the cons are very negligible compared to the pros, I rate this resort high and definitely recommend this.

Excellent Resort for staycation near Munnar. Me and my wife stayed for 2 nights and 3 days and wanted to stay more. Even in the pandemic situation they are giving the best service possible to every guest coming to the resort. Superb location, food from the restaurant is great, clean pool and rooms. They have almost all activities like paddle boats, cricket kits, badminton court, basket ball court etc etc for spending your day at the Resort. Special thanks to Mr. Arun from the Front office department, always ready to go the extra mile for their guests. Highly recommend

Resort
Pretty, located in a dreamy location, setup is very nice as well. You get beautiful views from outside of your room. It has a lake, clean swimming pool, well done Spa area.
The place needs a bit of touch up of paint, there are places which look neglected but overall is a good resort in a beautiful setting. Resort was fully booked. Check in and check out was hassle free. It felt a bit odd when they asked us to surrender our room keys for cleaning but it was not an issue.

Rooms
Spacious with good amenities. We constantly had to request toiletries, tea and coffee sachets. We would expect them to provide a reasonable amount of stuff and not expect guests to constantly request these small things. Having said that they did send what we asked for, at no extra cost. The TV in the room had no active subscription which again they provided when requested. Don’t know why they expect guests to request these basic things- doesn’t give a premium feeling even though one pays a premium to stay.

Staff
Room service was poor, staff appeared disinterested, were constantly on there mobile phones. Had to send them back and forth three or four times for one request.
Restaurant staff were friendly, quick and served with a smile.

Food
Breakfast was routine, they make fresh dosas and omelettes which were nice but overall nothing special- this was included in room price.
We ate dinner and felt food was ok and reasonably priced but nothing like wow

Summary
Overall premium price for a premium location but unfortunately not a premium experience

We made the plan to visit this place with huge expectation, unfortunately it turned to be a worst experience. From the time we entered the resort we couldn't find any support staff to help us. I am not sure whether this is due to less staff at this property. The food served at this place is horrible. It taste bad and of poor quality. The room where I stayed is good, the villa type property will give you a peace of mind during the evening walk and helps to enjoy the beauty of nature. But this peace of mind will loose as soon as you go to bed. The bed is of poor quality, the spring sound disturbs your sleep and you will loose the peace of mind which you got in the evening. No house keeping guys to help you to clean the space post your dinner (Due to rain we asked to deliver the food to room). The property is clean to walk around but the pool is dirty (full of worms) and stinging badly. When I enquired with other mates, i understood it was in same condition for last few days.
Only good thing here is the type of property (Villa). Thankfully I planned the stay here only for a day.

This property, set deep in the interior, offers a warm reception complete with a welcome drink and a brief on the rules, regulations, and available activities. A buggy ride to your room allows you to enjoy the scenic roadways, setting high expectations. However, upon reaching the room, these expectations may plummet. Surprisingly, the room is equipped with a wall fan, an unusual feature for a property claiming four or five-star status.

Despite adjusting to this, our dining experience also fell short. The buffet, priced around 1.5k per person, failed to impress. With about 5-7 items, none of the dishes, except for the coconut rice, had any notable flavor. This was disappointing, especially after a long journey from Kochi and expectations of a satisfying meal. Local roadside eateries might lack in cleanliness but often excel in taste, a contrast to this property’s average cleanliness and bland food.

Additionally, the staff seemed inexperienced and unprofessional, possibly locals employed for daily tasks. While supporting local employment is important, one expects a certain level of hospitality from a five-star establishment, which was lacking here.

I raised my concerns for food the next evening just to tell them that they should improve the food quality then they offered me to not pay for the dinner on second day, even after insisting to pay for the buffet as I ate rice and dal(which was the best they had) they didn’t charge me.

This property is often a top recommendation on the Make my Trip planner, possibly because it's not easily discovered otherwise. I advise taking your time to find the right place. Based on my experience, I cannot recommend this property until there are significant improvements in hospitality, which, unfortunately, seems unlikely to happen soon.

The hotel staff was very humble and the spa was good but the rest of the experience was not good. The rooms are dirty.
They have converted normal room to a jacuzzi just to give it an upgrade but experience was not good as it was not planned properly.
The services are not upto the mark. We ordered for in room dinning and the food always took an hour to come.
The handwash soaps are very substandard, most of us have dry hands now.
Food is average.

I stayed in this property in April 2022 & i must say that it’s was an amazing experience of staying here. At first i was a little skeptical while booking this place because somehow the images here didn’t give a complete picture of what i should be expecting at this property, but when i arrived at this property everything starting from check-in until checkout was perfect. The staff is very courteous & polite & the service here is super quick, trust me i am comparing the service speed with the mariott’s & taj. I was amazed to see such a quick service. Also the food here was too good even for north indian’s, go for the buffet it’s very reasonably priced at 500 & it’s really good. This property is for everyone from couples to family or fiends. Really good job guys. 👍🏻

The hotel is situated very far from Munnar and it is not advisable to do the check in and check out in the night due to bad roads with no light.

Also the hotel is not worth to spend the amount of money as there is no cleanliness and no maintenance. The room towels are not cleaned, cups in the rooms are dirty, you will find spider web, lizards atleast we found these. But I must say the food is really good that is the only thing I liked about this place, rest is not worth spending the money.
